Cougars Play Tough, Fall to Fire

(1/26/10) Clearwater- Clearwater lost on Tuesday evening to NCCAA #3 ranked Southeastern University 85-75. The Cougars showed great heart as they came back from a 10 point deficit to trail by 2 at the half, 36-38.

In a hard fought second half that saw Southeastern never lose the lead, the Cougars stayed within striking distance throughout. With 1:30 to go they had cut the Fire lead to four and had the ball, but couldn’t convert on a drive. The Cougars then gave up some easy baskets late in an attempt to get the ball, which resulted in the 10 point loss.

Troy Hadlock led the Cougars with 16 and Zo Saunders followed with 14. Todd Wahlberg chipped in 13 and Bryan Copeland added 11 for CCC. Bryan Spears and Walhberg both contributed 8 rebounds each for CCC.
